Buttery, crunchy cookies that are perfect for dipping in milk. You’ll love these great big cookies!
The other day, while my son was in town visiting, I asked him if there was anything he wanted me to make for him while he was here. He responded with “Chocolate Chip Cookies.”
I asked him if he wanted soft ones or crunchy ones.
He looked and me with horror and said, “Crunchy! What’s wrong with you!?”
Hehehe. Yes, he loves these crunchy cookies because he loves to dip them in milk. I even made him a batch of these when he graduated from Basic Training in the Army, and he was thrilled to have Mom’s cookies! He had the whole batch, just for him.
They have that classic chocolate chip cookie flavor, but with the crunch that is reminiscent of a biscotti. So whether you like dipping in milk or coffee, these cookies are the perfect cookies to make.
These cookies are very big and need plenty of space to bake on the cookie sheet, so I only make 6 at a time.

I made these giant cookies for a bake sale and they were amazing. I weighed each one to ensure they were consistent and they looked and tasted beautiful. I will be making them again soon!Kim
